I am about to recycle the newest computer I have that has a floppy drive. It's a Dell laptop with a tray exchange between a CD drive and a floppy drive. You will be missed.

I'm keeping an older Thinkpad with an external floppy as a souvenir though. I'll have a shelf of the Thinkpads I owned through the years. >.>

I own a floppy drive, but it's not currently residing in a computer.

My current one does have a floppy, but my new (incomplete) one does not because there isn't even a spot for it.

Yeah, I have two machines with floppy drives, though, they're collecting dust.

I made one of those pen holders with my remaining floppy disks, too.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

No one should have a floppy drive.

I've still got a bunch of them in bins. I can't say that I've used one in a while though.
